Arts and Culture
Located at the Ocala Campus, the Webber Center Gallery provides a nucleus of arts and cultural programs for students, faculty and the community.
The 1,965-square-foot exhibit space was built to the specifications of the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Services so that it qualifies for many of their traveling exhibitions, as well as those of a number of other high-quality traveling exhibition companies.
Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday. Closed Friday through Sunday and on college-observed holidays. Admission to exhibits and receptions is free.
Over the last decade, the gallery has hosted a number of SITES exhibits but has also developed exhibits of its own such as the Student Juried Show, Summer Spotlight, and Trains at the Holidays.
The gallery was completed in summer 1995 through the generous contributions of Frank and Gladys Webber, and continues to showcase various exhibits throughout the year.
